Colorado

One of the best things about living in the 505 is it's proximity to great places like Pagosa Springs, Colorado.

Addy and I joined my parents for a fun road trip up to Colorful Colorado on Friday afternoon. Addy did great and slept the entire 4 hours in the car. She likes the Chief's pick up truck.

Matt was able to join us late Friday night after he got off work. He walked in to find us all in our PJ's hunched over a puzzle. We didn't do much more the whole time we were there. It was lovely!

We woke up to snow on Saturday morning; Addy's first snow!


The snow melted by mid-morning but it was still cold. I quickly learned that my energetic 7 month old does not have a lot of patience for dressing in layers but she sure did look cute in her socks and leggings.


My family likes to visit Pagosa at least once a year and we have a couple of restaurants we usually like to visit, but this time, we tried something new; a local brewery where they cook the food outside in a camping trailer. It may sound ghetto but the place was packed and they we're taking names for a waiting list.


On Sunday, we did a little shopping "downtown," which really means we went in and out of 4 stores that were all selling the same things they were last year. The shops are located across the street from the hot springs. You can't tell from the photo but it stinks!!! Those springs are popular but staaannnnkkky!


This was our 3rd time to stay in this house on the golf course right next to the lake/pond(?). We love the views, the geese flying over in the morning and the BEAutiful sunsets.


Does it get any better than this?


I came super prepared with everything Addy could possibly need including plenty of toys but what kept her the most entertained was this paper cup. I think Mr. Monkey might have felt a little neglected.


Besides a drive to Durango, we really didn't do much else. We did have some great time spent as a family though and we're hoping it was the first of many fun trips to Colorado with little Miss Addy.

Gosh it's gorgeous there. I am simply jealous of the beauty and snow. We have been to Pagosa on family ski trips a couple of times. Always love going!!

Oh goodness. That view is absolutely breath taking. Makes me miss the mountains so bad.
